Afrocentric Feminists Love City Paper

I love you, City Paper readers, whoever you are, wherever you live, and whatever you think.

This letter is simply a thank you for the good job that editor Evan Serpick, publisher Jennifer Marsh, and her staff, all the writers, interns, business staff, receptionist Charlie Herrick and all the people who work for City Paper to keep the place an atmosphere of home, not a business.

Thank you, Mr. Evan Serpick, for publishing my editorial letters during 2012. I love writing editorial letters for City Paper.

Thanks to readers who wrote editorial letters to City Paper. Your intelligence gave me pause to think about an issue that did not matter to me until your courage explained a thought-provoking explanation of a reality I had refused to understand.

Happy joy to all the readers who support City Paper when you pick up a copy and read the newspaper, as I do on most Wednesdays.

I leave you to celebrate this Christmas season with my favorite Bible verse: “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer.”

I love you, City Paper readers, whoever you are, wherever you live, and whatever you think.

Larnell Custis Butler


Correction: A story in last week’s paper (“A Millwright’s Tale,” City Folk, Dec. 12) included the wrong photograph. The story was about laid off Sparrows Point millwright Robert Price, and the correct picture appears with the story online. The picture included in the paper was actually of Tom Kerr, the subject of this week’s City Folk. City Paper regrets the error.
